Name Description
ResizedFrameImage: DevLong Resized frame using PixelSize attribute.
FrameImage: DevLong Depends on PhotonValue
DataSpectrum: DevDouble
ExposureScalar: DevLong
BandwidthScalar: DevLong
ThresholdScalar: DevLong
DeclusterScalar: DevLong
NumDroppedFramesScalar: DevLong Number of dropped frames.
PixelSizeScalar: DevDouble Resize the pixel. If -1 is not used.
RoI2CountsScalar: DevDouble Counts in RoI2
RoI1CountsScalar: DevDouble Counts in RoI1
RoI2MaxScalar: DevLong RoI for computing counts
RoI2MinScalar: DevLong RoI for computing counts
RoI1MaxScalar: DevLong RoI for computing counts
RoI1MinScalar: DevLong RoI for computing counts
TotalAverageCountsScalar: DevDouble Total counts in RoI (depends on PhotonValue)
FileIndexScalar: DevLong Index to append to the file name. It will be increased by one after use. Avoid loading of files if not explicitly wanted.
WindowMaxScalar: DevLong

Name Description
StopAcquisitionInput: DevVoid
Output: DevVoid
StartAcquisitionInput: DevVoid
Output: DevVoid
Start acquisition
StatusInput: DevVoid
Output: ConstDevString
Device status
This command gets the device status (stored in its device_status data member) and returns it to the caller.
StateInput: DevVoid
Output: State
Device state
This command gets the device state (stored in its device_state data member) and returns it to the caller.



Name Description
AnalysisModeDevLong If 1, it works without detector, only loading files.
WindowMaxDevLong Window max (for photon processing)
WindowMinDevLong Window min (for photon processing)
kromo_pidsArray of DevLong Process ids from last server running. Filled by the tango device.

It can not be started with Astor if the remaining threads are not killed
per hand. The starting script and the Tango Server kill them at init.
